Sadly this is the last week of shares for fall. It has been wonderful getting to know our new people and catching up with those who have been supporting us for a while, we really truly appreciate every one of you. You all are wonderful. We did go a little crazy with this final basket just because its our last for the year and we love to spoil you!

  • broccoli
  • baby leeks
  • salad turnips
  • persimmons
  • pie pumpkin
  • quince
  • cayenne pepper (little goes a long way)
  • gypsy pepper
  •  green bell pepper

If you don’t want the quince, please don’t take any (it’s the fuzzy looking pear) of course we always encourage you to step our of your culinary comfort zone and try new things, you just might find something that you never would have thought you would like.

There will still be produce available every week until we freeze, please feel free to stop by and say hi.

Don’t forget to look for the sign up for spring shares when it gets posted later, spots are limited.

Please bring our baskets back!

Steamed Salad Turnips

Wash turnips and remove and leaves. set aside for later. steam the turnips until soft, about 2-3 minutes, add the leaves and steam until wilted. Remove from heat, add lemon zest and olive oil, to tastes. and a squeeze of lemon juice over the top,

super easy use of salad turnips and pretty tasty too.

Week 8 of Fall Shares

Happy fall ya’ll!  Boy do we have a treat for you this week! NO PEPPERS! that’s right we spared you a week with absolutely no peppers. Just kidding, that’s not the real treat. All though I am serious about there being no peppers. No the real treat is Ali pressed a ton of apples to make you apple cider! And oh my goodness it is really good.

There is a lot of other fun things in your basket this week for example:

  • Tart Pomegranates
  • Baby Potatoes
  • Red Apples
  • Green Onion
  • Lettuce Mix
  • Tomatoes
  • Tomatillo
  • Banana Squash  section (because they are just so big)
  • Buttercup Squash
  • Swiss Chard
  • Rosemary Sprigs
  • Sage
  • Pressed Cider

Lots of fun new things to experiment with. Maybe make a dixie salad with the pomegranates and apples, or buttercup ravioli with browned butter and rosemary, or balsamic apple salad. oh so many things to create.

We love to hear feedback from you, either with a recipe that you made, or how to make the shares even better.

Also if you don’t think you will use the apple cider please don’t take it, it’s a lot of work to make.

if you do decide to take it, please bring my jars back when you are done .

Thanks

Pumpkin butter


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of butter room temperature 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg 
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin purée 
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Whip butter until fluffy. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and 1 Tbsp pumpkin purée. Mix until just blended. Add another Tbsp of pumpkin and mix again. Add the rest of the pumpkin, maple syrup, honey and vanilla. And mix until blended. 

Use it on bagels, toast, zucchini bread, anything you would normally use butter on. Great fall twist 

Pumpkin can be adjusted to your taste as well.

Week 7 of fall shares

Not much has been happening this week. At least nothing exciting enough worth mentioning that is. With the days getting cooler that means sadly, the tomatoes are just about finished and ready to be pulled so enjoy the ones we can give you. But on the plus side that also means it’s more the season for a fire in the fire pit, hot chocolate or tea in your hands and being wrapped up in a blanket enjoying the cooler nights. Shares this week were a bit of a struggle. We are still trying to keep the unique factor going by adding at least one new thing each week, but with the in between weather we have been having were the cool season crops aren’t doing much and the warm season crops aren’t doing much we had to get a little creative…

  • Half a dozen garlic
  • Acorn squash
  • Apples
  • Salad mix
  • Asian greens
  • Lots of peppers (sorry about that)
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes 
  • Torpedo onion 
  • Carving pumpkin 

Also if you have any of our baskets we would really like to have them back. we are down to our last few.thanks in advance.
